Anderson Silva is still training hard to not leave his fans frustrated in his fight against Vitor Belfort the coming 5th in Las Vegas, at UFC 126. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of people left frustrated after training with him, as Brazil’s O Globo newspaper revealed this Sunday.
Reporter and MMA enthusiast Ary Cunha covered a training session with the UFC middleweight champion at the Nogueira brothers’ training center and witnessed the effort (in vain) of Jungle Fight champion Erick Silva in trying to land a punch to the face of the fighter who hasn’t lost in his twelve appearances in the octagon. (Check out the champion training in this video produced by the UFC in 2009).
Meanwhile, Vitor Belfort has also been hard at training, in Las Vegas, and Anderson knows it. Asked by Ary Cunha how he imagines the fight will be, Anderson fires back with an excuse response: “If I were Mother Dinah (a psychic), I’d be able to foresee that. Since I’m not, I’m getting ready for any situation, whether on the ground or standing,” said the thirty-five-year-old black belt. “I’m like find wine: the older, the better.”
